    Entitlement Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Software.

    Interview

    Four rounds of BS. I was told on a couple of occasions that I was qualified and could get up to speed quickly. I was also told it's more of a personality fit for the team. I was more than qualified, spent five weeks waiting on them - after they told me they'd wrap it up quickly - only to learn that they were passing. Rather than give a qualified candidate a needed opportunity, they apparently passed because they didn't see me as a good fit at their after-work socials. Oh, one more thing - they started off advertising the job with a $70k/30kbonus - only to change it to $60k/15kbonus after two interviews. The entire process was undignified and the people arrogant. But, what should I have expected from private equity people who do sw audits as a main source of revenue?

    Interview Questions

    • Basically they asked me if I'd accept $10k less in salary and $15k less in bonus than what they originally offered at the start of the interview process.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Software.

    Interview

    1:1 Phone interview for the first round and then 3 separate phone interviews for the second round. They did not call me back telling me my status in the process after the second round and did not respond to a follow status request 10 days later. Was displeased with that.

    Call Center Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Software (Henderson, NV) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call within 2 weeks of submitting an application. It was a brief phone interview with a very friendly person. The salary, hours and benefits were clearly explained. I was asked to come in for a second interview. It was with the same individual. She reviewed the salary, hours and benefits and gave me a tour of the facility. It is a very nice environment and the employees were friendly. I was given a typing test, a "listening test" and did some role play as if I were fielding calls from stranded motorists and determining their needs. I was impressed. I passed all the pre-employment tests. Later that day I received a call for a third iinterview but with the hiring manager. The following morning I was offered a position with another company that paid slightly better. I called Quest to cancel my third interview. The next day I received a call from my new employer telling me that the person I would be replacing rescinded their resignation. They withdrew their offer of employment. I was too embarrased to contact Quest and ask to reschedule my interview with the hiring manager. It would have been a very nice job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Quest Software (Aliso Viejo, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I received a call within 24 hours of submitting online. The recruiter was pleasant and managed the interview scheduling. The hiring manager and 2 others gave 1:1 interview, 2 in person and 1 phone interview. The people I interviewed with were very pleasant, they asked unique questions. One manager even took notes which made me feel heard and interested. I'm still going through the interview process and regardless if I land the job or not, I have respect for Quest and the culture they obviously work hard to preserve. Great job Quest!!

    C# .NET Developer for Server Virtualization Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo Grove, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Software (Buffalo Grove, IL) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews with Quest Software human resources people. The second phone interview came about one week after the first.

    In the first phone interview they sprung a .NET test on me.

    They were constantly telling me to read and understand their website for the interview with them. The website was http://www.vizioncore.com.

    In the 3rd and final phone interview, a manager asked me questions that lasted for 5 minutes and that wasn't because I didn't have any answers. He only asked 3 questions.

    No one got back to me for 2 weeks so I emailed one of the HR people. She told me I didn't get the job. I emailed back letting them know that they were unprofessional to not contact me and let me know as they said they would.

    I don't recommend interviewing with Quest Software or any of its subsidiary companies such as Vizioncore. Very unprofessional!

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Quest Software (Maidenhead, England (UK)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Interview Details – I finished my interview for Technical Support Engineer in December

    I was approached by a HR person on linkedin, had a phone conversation, then a Tech test and nterview with the hiring manager, and then support director .. finally I spent a half day with the support team.

    Throughout the process, they seemed really interested in how my company does things, processes and KCS and such like, which I felt was a little odd.

    Everything seemed to be really positive and I was promised feenback in a week...after a week I chased feedback..then a no thanks email.

    I asked for feedback..and never heard from them again..

    Considering that I had taken holiday and spent a half day with them watching the job..i was rather hoping for feedback on why i did not get the role.
